Hi Stefan, Good questions, all around! Middle age has been challenging on the exercise front. I always imagined my physical powers would gradually decline, but no, it's been sudden shocks, some recoverable, to a degree, some possibly not, and others still in the recovery process (I hope!). First it ...

Podcast #64: State of the Systems Part 3 (Meta)

The formatting of the transcript is a little inconsistent (working on that) but hopefully good enough for now:

Domamine nation is an excellent book. The audiobook version is excellent too (read by the author). I've listed to it and read it in print (and generated some anki cards). Gave it the full "Study Habit" treatment. I'm taking notes for an episode I'm tentatively calling "Demogorgon Whack-a-mole" that ...
